From back of book: Birthday is a self-contained triad of back-stories that reveal what really happened to three of the female characters in the Ring trilogy. In "Lemon Heart" (a.k.a. Ring 0), the vengeful Ring-ghost Sadako is in love with a fellow thespian. In "Coffin in the Sky," the bereaved lover of Ring-professor Ryuki Takayama dies a lonely death on a building roof as she gives birth to the new incarnation of the accursed psychic Sadako. And "Happy Birthday" follows the life of Reiko, the love interest of Kaoru,who entered the Loop matrix in search of answers to teh Ring virus.
